Stepping Stones Occupational Therapy in Bellevue has been selected to receive a $1,000 gift card to Sam’s Club in addition to training through SCORE, a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping small businesses grow and achieve their goals.

“The access to tools for my business from Sam’s Club and the additional training will really help me take my business to the next level, said Stepping Stones owner Jessica McMurdie. “I am honored to win this award, I appreciate Stepping Stones being recognized and brining awareness in the field of pediatric occupational therapy.”

Stepping Stones provides pediatric occupational therapy services including comprehensive evaluations and individualized therapy services for children on the Eastside.

In all, Sam’s Club and the Sam’s Club Giving Program and SCORE are providing more than $500,000 in supplies and training to 102 U.S. small businesses.

McMurdie has been working exclusively as a pediatric occupational therapist for over a decade. She graduated from the Occupational Therapy Program at the University of Washington in 2000 and earned a dual degree in Spanish in 1998. Her professional experience includes working in a wide variety of settings: Seattle Children’s Hospital on the traumatic brain injury and spinal cord rehabilitation unit, the Kindering Center birth to three neuro-developmental center, elementary schools and outpatient clinic settings.
